Making me walk past a bunch of stores that I have no interest in, to get where I need to go, is a waste of my time.
They probably also have parallel parking... shudder.

In the early 90's as a director of a town planning department in a southern Sydney council, I "computerised" the department. To the great annoyance of the IT manager, I progressively installed a IIci for the senior draftswoman, a couple of LC 475's for the planners and a Powerbook 145 for me. Then added AppleTalk to network them up - ridiculously cheap and easy compared to the IBM XT world I was meant to be 'amazed by' - not! . I really p'd off the IT manager when I added an SNAps 5250 card to connect the IIci (or was it a Quadra by then?) to his beloved IBM AS/400 and a second monitor for the Quadra (people from other departments used to come and watch just to see the cursor arrow glide seamlessly between monitors). This increased our productivity through the roof. Awards and accolades for the team from everywhere. Of course ClarisWorks was our mainstay app, and I used it at home too. BTW, the training cost - zero. I taught them (with my hands very firmly clasped behind my back, so that I didn't touch the mouse) how to move the mouse, hover, click and double click. This took all of five minutes, then the training software on the LC did the rest. Within a day they were writing reports, creating databases, modifying images with Pagemaker (very handy for planners) and soon they graduated to ClarisCAD. Of course, as soon as I left, for a bigger role elsewhere, the IT manager swooped and sent them back to the IBM stone age.

Faster processors and Arcade and Jennifer Anniston and such ain’t going to cut it.
Australia avoided recession during the 2008 Global Financial Collapse (or GFC, as it is accurately titled in Australia and NZ), because the big banks did not fail, and because the Rudd government sent every taxpayer a cheque for $1000 - some of which was spent on Apple products (at least in my family). That said this does look like a big cartel clutching at legal straws in an attempt to smash Apple's deal with ANZ and Amex.
